This year 1 August Syria celebrated one of the main holidays - the founding day of the Syrian Arab Army. In 1945, when the country finally gained independence after many years of colonialism, its army was created mainly from fighters against the invaders.
Today, when the new forces of colonialism are trying to impose on Syria the next policy of dictatorship, indicate who should leave and from what posts, and send hordes of thugs-terrorists for disobedience, which they themselves equip - the Syrian army plays the main role in defense of the Fatherland.
The Supreme Commander of the Army and the Armed Forces of the SAR, unbroken Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, in honor of the 68 anniversary of the founding of the army, visited the military positions of military personnel in the city of Darey near Damascus. He got acquainted with the conditions of service of the soldiers, a warm conversation took place between them. The head of state shook the hand of each fighter in positions, saying that standing next to them, shaking hands with any fighter in the Armed Forces is an honor for every citizen: "Being with you, I feel that I am with all the soldiers in every corner of our country. Shaking hands with you, I salute all the soldiers of Syria. "
The President stressed that the purpose of his visit is to convey to the fighters leading the battles for the liberation of the Motherland, words of gratitude on behalf of all citizens of the country and from every honest Syrian.
He said that the results that the servicemen had achieved directly on the ground spoke for themselves, recalling such successes as the liberation of the Baba Amr quarter in the city of Homs, the Eastern Guta district near Damascus, the city of Al-Xayr, and now in the province of Damascus and the Al-Khaldi quarter in Homs.
According to the president, it is very important that the whole world began to analyze the victories of the Syrian army. Her experience will be studied in the future.
He stressed that the secret of army resilience is in its ideological base. "Of course, many people do not understand the role of ideology, but it is the basis for any Armed Forces in the world, even for professional armies."
Bashshar al-Assad recalled that the terrorists had already 14 once declared "hour zero", planning an attack on Damascus. But each time the servicemen "turned all the conspiracy forces and those who were behind it to zero.
The Syrian leader noted that sometimes slogans are in the first place, and then practice follows, but for the Syrian army, it was practice that turned out to be a priority. “Your motto has always been the words“ Motherland, honor, devotion. ”These days you honestly and faithfully defend the Fatherland,” he said.
The head of state also welcomed members of the families of servicemen, stressing that every Syrian is closely associated with his relatives and dear to them. And if soldiers show strength and stamina, then their wives, parents, children, brothers and sisters are also strong. Therefore, they are part of the overall battle for the Motherland.
The strength of the army, the commander-in-chief noted, comes from its soldiers, but at the same time it relies on the people. “The Syrian people are on your side. And when we say that the army protects the people, at the same time we can say that the people protect the army. Today, the Syrians believe that to defend the army means to defend the Motherland. This is a national battle waged people's army. By protecting our people, we embody this principle. "
The President praised the heroism and self-sacrifice of the defenders of the Motherland: "If it were not for you, we would have neither universities, nor schools, nor food, nor water. If it were not for you, all the Syrians would become refugees. If it were not for you, then the country would be enslaved by those who want to put her on her knees. "
He noted that throughout his stories the Syrian people refused to be a slave, he was not conquered neither in the past nor in the present, and this should not happen in the future.
The supreme commander added: “Our motto has always been the words Death or victory!” But at this stage we will rely on victory. Because death is destiny, and the goal is to win. All the people expect the Syrian Arab Army to win. must be one with all the Syrians, and when we are together, then God will be with us. "
The President discussed with the servicemen issues relating to special operations to restore security in the city of Dareia. For their part, the army team confirmed their intention, in cooperation with citizens, to end terrorism.
It should be noted that the so-called "opposition" sharply did not like this visit of the president to the position, to the soldiers. Indeed, in their eyes the army completely deserts, the head of state allegedly hides, and among the soldiers there are many who would like to go over to the side of the so-called “revolution”. Therefore, they began to make absurd rumors that the president was allegedly not in Dareya, but in Tartus at the Russian naval base or even ... in Moscow!
No, gentlemen, the president visited Daraya. Yes, he raised the morale of the military, which is not like the terrorists. And all the stories are absurd, how absurd is the whole information campaign against Syria!
On the same day, the Supreme Commander addressed the military and citizens from the pages of the Army of the People magazine with these words: “You express the will of the people, defend their values and aspirations with your exploits. You are upholding the unity of the Motherland, showing unprecedented steadfastness in confronting terrorism and its accomplices. You have shaken the whole world with your courage and have shown the greatest valor in one of the most barbaric wars in modern history. ”
He stressed that the servicemen are fighting side by side in the same trench with the Syrian people, defending the country, and paid tribute to the memory of all fallen heroes.
“The valiant guards of the motherland, dear brothers, if we in Syria were not convinced of our victory, we could not resist aggression for the past two years. I am deeply convinced of your ability to fulfill your national duty. You are writing new pages of our heroic story. Today you are role models, ”the statement says.
Syria's Allies - Against Foreign Intervention
The traditional allies of Syria in this global confrontation are Iran, the Russian members of the BRICS group, as well as those countries that themselves suffer from the US imperialist policy - the states of Latin America, North Korea.
At a recent meeting of the UN General Assembly, Cuba’s permanent representative in this international organization, Rodolfo Reyes, sharply criticized the notion of “protecting civilians” that the West and the United States use as a pretext for foreign interference in Syria’s affairs, whether direct hostile actions or indirect terrorist support. He added that the continuation of violence is promoted by calls for a change in the legitimate authority of the SAR. The duty of the UN is to strengthen peace, and not to participate in the crimes of the militants.
Iran’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Gholam-Hossein Degani, spoke in the same vein, exposing the hostile position of the United States and Western countries seeking to impose their own conditions on Syria. He stressed that the resolution of the crisis can only be by peaceful means, and for this one of the most important conditions is the termination of the support of terrorists.
Recently, a delegation from Syria, led by the Deputy Secretary General of the Arab Socialist Renaissance Party, Abdullah Al-Ahmar, immediately visited two friendly countries - the DPRK and Russia.
Syrians took part in the celebrations of the celebration of the 60 anniversary of the victory of the Korean people in the Patriotic War of Liberation.
The delegation met with DPRK President Kim Jong-un, who conveyed greetings to President Bashar al-Assad and the entire Syrian people.
The Korean leader said that continued intervention in the internal affairs of the SAR is drawing the entire Middle East into a war with serious consequences that threaten the whole world. He expressed confidence that Syria would triumph over the conspiracy.
Al-Ahmar conveyed to Kim Jong Un a congratulation from the president of the SAR Al-Assad on the Victory Day over American aggression and thanked the country for its honest position and for supporting justice in the international arena. He also said that Syria respects the right of the DPRK to develop a peaceful atomic program.
After participating in the parade in the DPRK, Abdullah Al-Ahmar went to Moscow, where he met with Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and Chairman of the Russian-Syrian Friendship Society Alexander Dzasokhov, Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov.
Al-Ahmar thanked Russian politicians for the position of the Russian Federation in the international arena. He informed about the situation in Syria, stressing that the goal of those countries that arm and finance terrorists is not to build "democracy", but to destroy the Syrian state in order to put the entire region under the control of the United States and Israel.
He said that the servicemen are valiantly opposing the large-scale aggression launched by all the terrorist forces of the world against Syria. Thanks to the resilience of the Syrian people, their cohesion around the army and the leadership, as well as the help of the allies, the country has for more than two years been held in the face of this plot.
The Syrian delegation led by Al-Ahmar took part in a mourning rally near the SAR Embassy in Moscow, which was organized on the initiative of the Anti-Globalization Movement of Russia, the office of the National Union of Syrian Students, the Syrian community. The participants honored the memory of hundreds of soldiers and civilians who died at the hands of terrorists in the Khan Al-Asal province of Aleppo Province. Those who came to the embassy laid flowers and lit candles.
In addition to political support, Syria also receives humanitarian aid from friendly countries. So, recently, the Syrian Ministry of Health received a batch of medical equipment from the Iranian people. Iran is constantly helping the Syrians with medical equipment and food. The humanitarian aid batch, which also included medical equipment and drugs, was recently received from Russia.
So, in addition to the imaginary "friends of Syria", such as the United States, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and others like them, who send deadly to the country weapon for gangsters, - SAR has true friends who hold back the onslaught of the West and supply medicines and medical equipment so that the people can heal their wounds inflicted by false "friends."
Bandits in impotent rage kill civilians
Suffering defeat after defeat at the hands of the Syrian army, the gangsters called in the West “rebels” continue to kill innocent people, wanting to shed as much blood as possible so that they can report to the sponsor hosts, showing them at least some success.
But what kind of "success", more and more people in the world understand. Every success of the so-called "opposition" is blood and tears, destruction and grief ...
July 31 gangsters fired at the Barze metropolitan quarter. A mortar shell landed on a bus in which employees of one of the research centers were driving. Six people never returned home that day ... More than 20 were injured, of which 6 was in serious condition.
Holy Day for every Syrian army army terrorists also noted mortar shelling and terrorist attacks.
So, again mortar shelling of one of the most recalcitrant suburbs of Damascus - Jaramana was made. One person was killed, 9 suffered. Much material damage has been inflicted on residential buildings, cars, and shops.
Once again, the Abbasiin area in Damascus was also shelled. Several people injured.
In the province of Homs on the highway, an explosive device, planted by the militants, claimed the lives of two people who were driving past on a motorcycle.
In the city of Homs, the Wadi Al-Dahab quarter was shelled. There are dead and wounded. Residential buildings have been hit hard.
Despite all the crimes of the bandits, the people of Syria are united around the army and are determined to fight the terrible phenomenon of terrorism, all the more ominous that they are supported by Western circles, the reactionary Gulf monarchies and the overseas criminal No. XXUMX - the United States.
